This week our Abroad101 Student of the Week, goes to a group of students at University of South Florida. This group of students at USF represents a variety of majors including, education, business, fine arts, and international studies. The one thing they have in common though is that they are studying Mandarin Chinese and all plan to use Chinese in their future professional careers.
SInce the Chinese language is going to play such a large part in each of their future career goals, an educational trip to China is just what they need! This group is planning to achieve just that by going on University of South Florida’s Chinese Learning in the Culture Tier II 2015 Summer Study Abroad program. Throughout this program they will study Chinese for 10 weeks at Ocean University of China located in Qingdao. This language intensive program not only offers engaging coursework that will allow them to better interact and understand the Chinese culture but they will also each partake in an internship! If that doesn’t sound like an experience enough, they will also be participating in various community service activities, such as accompanying the elderly, fundraising for a blind school, teaching at elementary schools, and planting trees in the countryside throughout our time in Qingdao. Wow, what an adventure they have coming up this summer! To learn more about this awesome group of students check out their Fundraising Mission here.
The Abroad101 Student of the Week initiative awards a student who created a Mission for a study abroad program on GoEnnounce with a donation to their fundraiser. Learn more about this partnership from Abroad101 CEO Mark Shay and GoEnnounce co-founder Melissa Davis here.
Stay tuned for our next Abroad101 Student of the Week!
